although our choreography did not win us a Dancing with the Stars award, the crowd's cheering and enthusiasm was warming through the downpour and kept our team going strong. It was a great team building experience and we had a lot of fun out there.

Gordon's Window Décor proved you do not have to be a professional dancer to have joined in the Quadricentennial Parade last Saturday in Burlington, Vermont. Even the torrential rain couldn't dampen the spirit of their group, which included employees male and female, young and seasoned and even had the participation of an eight- month pregnant employee! The Quadricentennial parade was one of the many events celebrating the 400th anniversary of French explorer and cartographer Samuel de Champlain's travels by sail, oar, and paddle to the lake that now bears his name.
The Lake Champlain Quadricentennial Commission was excited about the prospect of having an all dance parade, which was scheduled to commence rain or shine, and The Gordon's Window Décor crew was happy to take on the challenge. With the help of renowned choreographer Karen Amirault the group mastered a special dance routine reflecting their enthusiasm for their community. After weeks of evening practices - the staff felt ready to rock and roll down Main Street for the Quadricentennial Parade Celebration.
The parade itself included dance routines from around the world including the Abenaki Nation, The Bosnian Lilies Folk Dance Group, Peru Mestizo, Inc., various dance studios from around the area, appearances from Senator Bernie Sanders and Vermont Governor Jim Douglas. Sandwiched in between over 70 performing groups was the lively staff of Gordon's Window Décor, right behind The Karen Amirault Dance Company & KIDZ and in front of The Tibetan Association of Vermont.
Betty Sargent, employee of Gordon's Window Décor, said, "I was enthusiastic and excited about participating, even in the rain. Our passion as a whole was great despite the poor weather."
Gordon Clements, President of Gordon's Window Décor seconded Sargent's statement, "although our choreography did not win us a Dancing with the Stars award, the crowd's cheering and enthusiasm was warming through the downpour and kept our team going strong. It was a great team building experience and we had a lot of fun out there."
